That's a hilarious question... You may be the first person to ever actually look for a Me & My Uncle Jam!

There are a couple possible answers. Someone mentioned the 4-24-72 DS>Uncle>DS, but forgot about the DS>Uncle>DS from 12-5-71, which might be the one you saw since the Dark Star that night was entirely instrumental!

Other One>Uncle sandwiches in late '71 are extremely common, but generally they go all the way into Uncle instead of just jamming it. Sometimes Weir wants to go there & the band won't follow - for instance, check out this Other One at the 6-minute point, where Weir almost takes them into Uncle, but doesn't succeed. More of a tease than a jam...

Or just possibly, you might have seen the 5-7-69 Me & My Uncle, which holds the award as the trippiest, most jammed-out Uncle. It's not in Dark Star, though (that comes later in the show)...

hmm, I must have misunderstood him.

1971-12-01 does however have a MAMU jam a few minutes before they end up actually playing the song. Lasting of course only somewhere around 10-40 seconds.

This may have been it, I do have that show in rotation in my car at the moment. I'm not sure what made me think I have heard such a thing before, I just couldve sworn I have recently been engrossed in listening to a jam recently and heard Bobby's MAMU part starting in and then fading out.

I have also been listening to a lot of the 72 Box so it also could have been that Dark Star.
